    When did Zoe start wearing a tutu? And why?:confused:

    We have discussed this topic in depth here:


    One insider had this to say:

    "The whole idea behind Zoe's tutu is to mirror the way children sometimes go through an attachment phase - like having favorite doll or blanket, or an article of clothing that they want to wear every day.
    Fran liked the idea of that - hence Zoe's tutu. I imagine it will disappear someday, but for now it's a cute little concept. It's very innocent and child-like."

    i never saw her without the tutu...or maybe i have...not real sure, lol.

    i think that one of the best jokes of last season was based on her tutu...

    Alan: Have a dance lesson Zoe?
    Zoe: No. Why?
    Alan: Oh.....no reason

    lol. it was on today and i was dying, lol.

    She does show up without it sometimes, although lately, she does seem to be in the tutu a lot.

    That line with Alan cracked me up too!

    He is the best new human IMO. He interacts with the Muppets wonderfully.

    I heart Alan.

    The Sesame Street Encyclopedia said, "One of her favorite hobbies other than driving the Zoemobile is dancing, which is why she always wears a tutu."

    The reason why Zoe wears a tutu (in my opinion) is to give her more of an identity.

    Otherwise, without it, she's just another female monster, like Lulu.

    I always thought she started wearing her tutu to avoid complaints about her being naked, well I mean without clothes, because with all that fur, she technically isn't naked. When she was introduced in 1993, she hardly wore a tutu. She didn't start perminately wearing it until 2002, so thats 9 years of seeing her without her tutu. In Sesame Street Magazine though, she doesn't wear her tutu unless there's a section encouraging readers to dance along.
